The Celtics swept their home-and-home series against the Washington Wizards. Boston needed overtime to best the opposition on their home floor, but survived by a score of 100-94. Brandon Bass tallied five big points in overtime, giving the Celtics an 97-92 lead. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce iced the the game with free throws. Bass was on the court for most of the end of regulation and for all of overtime. After appearing to lose his starting role to Jared Sullinger, this was a big showing for the veteran power forward. With the score tied at 88, Rajon Rondo clanged a three-pointer at the end of regulation, allowing the game to see the extra period. The Celtics had a decent lead for most of the second half, but started settling for jump shots inside of four minutes. That quickly caused their lead evaporate. Kevin Seraphin's dunk knotted things up at 80, around the three-minute mark. Kevin Garnett was whistled for a technical foul after stealing the ball from Seraphin and getting fouled.
